"Before we get started, I have to talk about the rumors that came out today, which says I'll be moving up to 11:30. Or as my parents call it, 'Yeah, that's still too late,'" joked the funnyman.
Fallon then quipped, "Actually the rumors are true. NBC is turning the ‘Tonight Show’ into a diving competition. So exciting.”

Reality star Kim Kardashian stopped by "The Tonight Show" on Tuesday and chatted with Jay Leno about her engagement to Kris Humphries... and her gargantuan 20.5 carat engagement ring. Jay questioned the authenticity of the jewel. "If it burns, it's not real, it's cubic," adding, "If it's fake, Mr. Humphries has some explaining to do."
Kim hesitantly handed over the ring to Leno, who placed it in a small metal holder and lit a match. The ring lit up immediately and turned black.
Lindsay Lohan received a surprising standing ovation when she made a guest appearance on the "Tonight Show," which was pre-taped on Monday and will air tonight.
The actress said her 120-day jail sentence was "shocking," adding that she felt "kind of numb." Lohan, 24, believes she has matured and can stay out of trouble. "I think that when, you know, being young and being in the position I was in, you don't really take the time to appreciate what you have and it's all kind of a whirlwind, and people make decisions for you. But I'm not a kid anymore -- I'm 24, I've made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that. I'm in the clear now, and as long as I stay focused, I can achieve what I want to achieve."
Actor and new father Owen Wilson appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on Tuesday and revealed he received 24 stitches to his head after a recent surfing accident in Hawaii.
"I took on a wave that was probably too big for me. I went off the back and the board kinda caught air and the board came back and hit me in the forehead and I got 24 stitches," Wilson said.
After telling Leno about his brother's encounter with a shark, Owen admitted he was fearful of getting attacked as he paddled back to shore, bleeding. "I was thinking about the shark as I was paddling back in with a little blood dripping into the same cove where my brother was attacked recently!"
